Located in Prince George’s County, Maryland, U.S.A., 7 miles southeast of the District of Columbia, the Westphalia Property is ideally situated for community development. The property is along the north side of Maryland State Route 4 and directly across from Joint Base Andrews, approximately 1.5 miles east of the Capital Beltway. The Capital Beltway encompasses Washington, D.C. and its inner suburbs in Maryland and Virginia. The southern edge of the property runs parallel to Pennsylvania Avenue with more than 1.5 miles of frontage. Pennsylvania Avenue is a major commuter route, which runs 13.5 miles from the property to Capitol Hill, the site of the White House and the Capitol Building.

 

The preliminary development plan that has been prepared includes three phases over an estimated seven-year time horizon. When completed, it is anticipated that the project will provide approximately 66 single family homes, 779 townhomes, 884 rental apartments, 400,000 square feet of retail space, 2,240,000 square feet of office space and 600 hotel rooms.

 

Investment Strategy

The Corporation intends to preserve the capital investment of the investors and provide cash distributions on the units by executing the following four-step investment strategy:

  • Acquire the Westphalia property through a U.S. subsidiary;
  • Obtain letters of intent or expressions of interest from vertical developers and other end users to purchase lots and parcels to be serviced in each of the three planned phases of the development of the property before construction commences on that phase;
  • Construct municipal services infrastructure on the property in phases to provide a controlled supply of serviced lots and parcels to the marketplace; and
  • Use the revenue from the sale of the serviced lots and parcels to repay construction loans and other obligations of the corporation and the U.S. subsidiary, and then pay the remainder to the holders of the debentures and Class B shares by paying the interest and principal on the debentures and by declaring a dividend or dividends on the Class B shares through the life of the investment in the property and/or winding up the Corporation and distributing its assets to the holders of the Class B shares.
